What to Expect

Matsue Castle was built about 400 years ago, and we can feel and imagine how Samurais lived there.
Small boat riding on castle moat is cool in the summer and warm with the heat in the winter. It's fun to have the boat ceiling goes down under the low bridges and listen to a boatman's local song.
At Adachi Museum of Art, you can take the best pictures.
I am being flexible and willing to put my effort to make your trip satisfied.

“ Wonderful time in San'in Region in Japan ”

My Son and I were in the wonderful San'in Region of Southwest of Honshu in Japan for a couple of days and wanted to know a little more of this place. It was the “golden week”, so lots of people were travelling around. Megumi showed us the Matsui Castle and Adachi Museum, what we enjoyed very much! The tour was very instructive and the amount of information was just right. We had a wonderful time together. I can Megumi highly recommend if you are visiting this area of Japan!

Megumi:

Thank you very much!!! I'm grad you enjoyed the tour. It was a wonderful time for me, too!
